nellycale (184) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2014
On tap at Hay Merchant in Houston. Pours a slightly hazy straw hue with a light with head. Aroma of peach, yeasty/lemon sour and grains. Taste of citrus, wheat, grassy/earthy, nectarine. Bitter finish with citrus, earthy notes, yeast and grass. Very easy drinking saison but if you are looking for a more typical saison, might try prairie ale instead. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours hazy gold with a large head. Nose shows pear, light sweet malt, floral hops, farmhouse yeast, apple. Very estery. Flavours are a mix of light malt, pear, saison yeast and a characteristic dry finish. Very easy drinking. Light body, carbonation is a little high.

RyanK (200) - Rhode Island, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours a clear light yellow with almost champagne like carbonation. Has a large white head that dissipates reasonably fast. Strong aroma even from the pour, pepper and orange for sure. Most noticeable is the champagne like carbonation the balances against the watery body making this taste more like pellegrino than anything. Certainly peppery some orange but mostly watery and bubbly. Real disappointed.

nakedwhendrunk (2101) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Tonight’s live review, this was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy golden yellow color. Though hazy, I could see extremely light streams of carbonation seen rising at a nice pace. Lacing was kind of all over the place. The smell had a slight yeasty/doughiness up front and lets in a tad of light black pepper and then a light lemon. The taste was moderately sweet but bready backed up by a nice spice from the black pepper. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Sessionability was slightly there. The carbonation seems to be fairly subdued and it rolled across my tongue in a nice peppery doughy way. Overall, this was a good saison I’d have again.

haukur (1305) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 4, 2014
Farmhouse yeasty cheesy aroma. Very golden, lively head. Dry mouthfeel, very zesty and slightly estery. Thirst quenching and easy. Good.

_angst_ (2777) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours very hazy yellow with a frothy white head that leaves some sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly subtle, tiny fruity and slightly funky with wheat crackers, pineapple, star fruit, barnyard, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns and lemon zest. Taste is slightly sour, slightly bitter, tiny fruity and floral with wheat crackers, lemon juice, unripe pineapple, passion fruit, hay, dry soil, lemon zest and hints if band aids. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, sparkling, tiny tart and light bodied. Finish is tiny sour, slightly bitter, floral and phenolic with crackers, unripe pineapple, dry soil, hay, white pepper corns, lemon zest and hints if bandaids. Good but slightly too heavy on the band aid phenols.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head. Nose is full of lemon biscuit and sweet Belgian yeast - quite straw forward. Taste is sweet and bready with plenty of straw and lemon. Juicy and citric stuff. Goes down like a true quaffer. Tasty stuff
